2013 has not been a good year for big music festivals. But one festival that seems to be doing just fine is the NOW now Festival, a Marrickville-based, artist-run event that's been around since 2001.

The festival features over 60 local and international artists, but not the kind you'd see on your average Big Day Out or Soundwave bill. There's 'sonic terrorist' Lloyd Honeybrook, performance art and comedy collective Internet, experimental jazz musician  Clayton Thomas and large-scale electro-acoustic ensemble The Splinter Orchestra, to name a few.

Held every January, the festival runs over five days, with day passes, three-day passes and festival passes available if you plan on checking out multiple acts. There'll be live performances at The Red Rattler, a group show at Marrickville gallery SNO, instrument building and sound recording workshops at Addison Road Markets, artist conversations at Marrickville Bowling Club and even a NOW now zone.
